3 Tips to Avoid Having Your House Stay on the Market Too Long
When you put your house up for sale, the last thing you want is for it to stay on the market for too long. Stale listings are often seen by buyers as problematic and you may have to eventually lower your price in order to sell.
Let's discuss three tips to avoid having your house listing stay on the market too long!
Work With a Professional Realtor
Working with a professional Realtor is one of the best ways to prevent your listing from staying on the market too long. An experienced Realtor will be able to help you price your home correctly and will also have access to a network of buyers who may be interested in your property. Realtors also list your home on the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) which will give your property more exposure to potential buyers.
If you’re working with a Realtor, make sure that they’re marketing your property correctly. Your Realtor should be providing you with feedback on showings and actively working to find buyers for your home.
Stage Your Home
Staging your home is one of the most important things you can do when selling your house. By making your home look its best, you will be able to attract more buyers and get them to pay a higher price for your property. According to the 2021 Profile of Home Staging by the National Association of Realtors, 82% of buyers' agents said that staging a home made it easier for a buyer to visualize the property as a future home and 23% percent of buyers’ agents said that staging a home increased the dollar value offered by 1-5%, compared to other similar homes on the market that were not staged.
Price Your Home Right
Pricing your home correctly is essential when selling your house. If you price your home too high, you will miss out on potential buyers who are looking for a bargain. On the other hand, if you price your home too low, you will not get the full value of your property.
If you're unsure about the correct value of your home, it's always best to consult with a real estate agent. They will be able to give you an accurate estimate of what your home is worth based on a comparative marketing analysis and help you come up with a fair price for your home.
